the law and didn't do their job for the american people and it's the president that hasn't led this country and come up with a plan for the american people. jay carney might say hey, listen, we've got a plan and this is the plan. well then share the plan with the american people. then we can get somewhere in this country and we can actually tackle the spending and debt that's going to bankrupt us all. >> reince, if the plan is exactly as he has stated here, and it includes some tax increases as the vast majority, nearly two thirds, more than two thirds of the american public want, actually want, if that is on the table, why wouldn't the republicans sign up to it? >> listen, i don't know the details of what he's offering, piers. i'm not trying to hide behind any of it. i just can't actually have an intelligent conversation about a plan hypothetically that we haven't seen, that might include tax increases and might not and might include some deduction loophole eliminations that we haven't seen. how can you have an intelligent conversation like this? you actually have to see a pla
. and in 2011, they passed four times as many laws as congress. this was accomplished with aicism legislative tool, according to state representative david shapeera. >> the republicans are able to pass the bills through pretty quickly and easily because they have a super majority in both chambers. >> yes, a super majority. it's like a regular majority, but with a rare super power it's ability to treat others as invisible. with two-third of the state house in their control, republicans can pass pretty much anything. >> they passed a bill that said that the colt 45 would be the state gun. >> every state has a state gun. >> i don't think that's 2. there is a bill that defends us against some sort of like u.n. invasion. >> that's awesome. >> no, not really. >> sv1359 would say medical professional doesn't have to inform a woman during her pregnancy if the child has a birth defect. >> wow. it's just showboating at this point. really rubbing it in your faces. >> could be. >> it's like arizona republicans have already put the no labels 12-step plan into place. and the people of arizona couldn't be h
not the sole spokesperson certainly those policies of welfare reform law and order they have been demagogue when nixon says law-and-order we know what he talks about. those were reagan and bush and rudy guiliani bless his soul tens of thousands of black lives were saved when will fare was one of the reform to blacks of lives were saved in a different way law-and-order was so saved and bill clinton took credit for both. [laughter] and we have 12 years of paradise where i describe the many wonderful things that happened. people are not walking on eggshells is a more. people had to be worried you would innocently say a word then you would ruin your career, you'd be hated by all of humankind. that was after over at o.j.. changes are subtle but it was wonderful for race relations in america. and happened along time ago then comes the most liberal candidate as barack obama it is the two for. a liberal president and his critics by:the reese's. and now with the bombing it comes back. we're walking on eight shells. although not very delicately [laughter] hence my introduction of.

right would have been so quietly obedient to constitutional law. there's something out there on the right right now that is still uneasy with this defeat. searching desperately for an explanation of how the conservative caterpillar they had right there in their hands became the liberal butterfly now happily fluttering and, yes, defiantly free of them, and they don't like it one bit. i'm joined by rick hertzberg and "the huffington post's" howard fineman. rick, i wonder about this. this sense they have of almost royal ruling class identity with the white house. what do you make of it and their attitude before and after the election? they really weren't going to lose, and they haven't really in some strange way because they got the house. >> yeah. well, this attitude has built up over time over the years. they didn't really think bill clinton was legitimate because ross perot they thought cost him the election. they thought that obama's original election was a freak on account of bush being such a terrible president, and they were not equipped to deal with this defeat, an
's social and law and order conservatives, who are concerned about preserving america's unique culture and the maintenance of social order. to these conservatives the presence of large numbers of people in the united states and in violation of american law is inherently problematic. what's more, many of them aren't wild about the influx of large numbers of illegal immigrants either, arguing that any culture needs sufficient time for new arrivals to assimilate and that cultures can benefit from periodic pauses in immigration. now, there's some other camps as well, for example, moral and social conservatives, such as some in the catholic church and other religious groups who favor what might be called a light-touch approach to immigration on what they believe are social justice grounds. but the broader point is there is a deep tension and division on the right on immigration, and there has been for decades now. the recent presidential election has brought the immigration issue once again to the center of american politics. governor mitt romney received a small percentage of latino and as

's not a perfect law. do the math. deduct it a little bit or make changes to republican care. you've got the workings of a grand compromise and everyone can walk away a winner by saying, look, we changed obama care, we're going to pay down the debt. who loses in that situation? certainly on the fringes people would say it's a bad deal but pretty much both parties could walk away and say we compromised and we fixed it. >> you want to write that up and send it up to the hill there? the other hot topic on "meet the press," the gaubenghazi attack t killed the ambassador chris stevens. >> susan rice is obligated to do more than look at a three-sentence unclassified or five-classified unclassified talking points. she had access to all of the sensitive top secret classified information and she knew that the story she was giving out was not entirely true. >> you know, that is still pretty harsh. do republicans have a political tenure on this? >> i'm not sure. you see a lot of republicans watching the sunday shows. they are being just as fervent as they were a few weeks ago. but if you look betwe
who had physician cal maturity but not emotional maturity. we invented hools and child labor laws and it took forty years to create the word teenager. that was invented by somebody in their 60's but the main lesson is these stages of life were responses to problems. they were solutions. and it's ironic that it was stanley hall himself, the inventor of youth who proposed twenty years later a stage between midlife and old age arguing that he had actually made a mistake. he should have invented this stage for people like himself. he promptly passed away a year later but in writing about this period, he had asset of beautiful images and insights which make a lot of sense almost 100 years later. he described this period as an indian summer. and he said human beings didn't reach the height of their capacity until the shad dozen slanted eastward. the idea was more and more people were reaching a point where they had the benefits of experience and the capacity to do something with it. there was a book a couple of years ago that described the key traites of this period as active wisdom. i
money is that money, regulations -- that affected all the campaign fance laws. the citizens united decision was totally predictable as a response to mccain-fine gold. despite my working for john mccain, who had a campaign finance reform position i always thought was blazingly unconstitutional -- we have weakened the political parties and weaken the candidate committees. the political parties have been moderating influences in american politics -- the political parties goal is to assemble aajory, not to advance an ideology. the advancement of an ideology by either party is secondaryis a function of the majority. now, with all the super pac money there is incasingly ideological mey, increasing the enforcement money. reagan talked about the fact that if you are with me 80% of the time you are not my political opponent, you are my political ally. in a super p world where you have a apostate republican or an apostate democrats on an issue, you will see the enforcement of ideological discipline through the use of the super pac in a primary on either the left or the right. it has the fact
. megyn: could there be a violation of federal law? that prohibits the use of private e-mail accounts unless there are procedures in place to ensure that they are tracked appropriately, stored appropriately, and disclosed appropriately upon appropriate demands. >> that is what our committee is looking into. we want to know if this is appropriate and at all these things are being done over at the epa. i suspect that they are not. again, it's taking a long time for the epa to fulfill the freedom of information requests. this is one of the reasons why. megyn: all this got started because a private group sued them about nonpublic e-mail accounts and that was reportedly ignored and unanswered. then you guys wade in and haven't been able to get answers yet either. we will see how it plays out. thank you for being here. megyn: well, priceless rock carvings that have survived more than 3500 years are now defaced and stolen. by a group of thieves. we will show you what happened and who they think is behind it. and a heavy barrage of rocket launchers. three minutes away megyn: a fox news alert.
, military, intelligence, diplomatic, law enforcement, financial, economic and above all, the power of our values as americans. al qaeda has long sought to operate in areas beyond the reach of effective security and governance. after being left on the sidelines of the momentous changes that swept through -- al qaeda affiliated groups are taking control of territories in the north and pose an emerging threat. we are concerned about libya, where violent extremists and affiliates of al qaeda attacked and killed innocent americans in benghazi. with respect to that attack, let me be clear, we will work with the libyan government to bring to justice those who perpetrated those attacks. to protect americans at home and overseas, we need to continue to pursue al qaeda wherever they go, whatever form they take, wherever they seek to hide. we must be constantly vigilant. we must be constantly determined to pursue this enemy. but what will it take to achieve the end of al qaeda or at least the beginning of the end? first, it will be essential to finish the job that we started and that we must complet

. the operational statute will by law make these rates go up. that's what's changed. >> but when given a series of options to tax changes to consider, cantor did not warm to any of them. david brooks talked sunday about the conundrum facing speaker boehner. >> republicans have some homework to do. they have to figure out which taxes do we least want to oppose? and so that's rates, that's capital gains or that's deductions. i think they're going to end up with capital gains. >> meanwhile, the white house continues to believe they'll win the tax rate, you. and it's calling on the president's supporters to pressure congress to increase taxes on the wealthy hoping to build momentum behind their position. the president was never able to rally behind when it came to health care. today the white house is out with a report from the national economic council and the council of economic advisers to coincide with cyber monday estimating that consumers could spend nearly $200 billion less in 2013 if no 0 deal is reached and everyone's taxes go up at the end of the year. and in today's "new york times" warr

a creative revision of the tax laws and serious debt reduction programs. he should encourage congress to enact an annual budget which has not occurred for the past three years. he might come up with a proposal for inventive public/private partnerships to improve infrastructure including the electric grid. and, of course, continue to encourage any energy independence. a resolution of the supply of unsold houses should be sought, but all of this will occur only if a reelected barack obama can somehow find the unique temperament required to work with his administration to move to the center and discover ways to reach meaningful compromise with a congress willing to pass legislation this country so desperately needs. although it is not a subject of this paper, one can ask, will he be reelected? historically, rarely have presidents been reelected to a second term with popularity ratings in the 40% level, which is where obama rests. but so does romney. it is interesting to note that only three of 19 presidents elected to a second term had relatively less popularity ratings at the time of th
reform law was historic, many people -- i actually assume that most of the five people at this table think that it's a shocking thing that america is the most powerful country on earth before the health care law was passed, had a massive number of many, many millions of uninsured people in the country when every other industrialized country has universal coverage. >> right. we do all agree with that, right? >> one of the more historic things, it's going to move millions of uninsured people into the ranks of the civilized world. >> and as the president promised, also not only is he going to put 30 million people on the rolls for health care, it's also going to save us money. so it tastes great, willie, and it's less filling. >> i don't know how he's going to pull that off. >> i don't know how you pull it off. but he said it, and i believe it. that settles it. >> how does the most industrialized country in the world -- it's saying that those two things are compatible. my god. >> why don't you move to luxembourg? >> i'm actually thinking about that. >> that would be awesome. >> yeah. >>
university and their challenge the controversial law. their challenge is the employer mandate and to fund what they call abortion related services for thr employees. we have leaders well coming up with more. we know this case very well. >> yes, tardy at the supreme court. cheryl: the argument, is this going to fly? >> with the supreme court said is the first time around, we said that wasn't right. that nobody had been hurt yet. and so the mandate had been in place. so really you cannot argue that. but now what they are saying is that it isn't just an issue about the mandate. it is out a right of religion and that may be right. will they win? it is a fairly liberal cou area. i would be kind of surprised to see them win on these grounds. >> yes. this could set the stage for another go around. >> if they win in a small area and they argue religious rites, vermont we have the hospitals doing that as well, the floodgates open. we are right back to the supreme -ourt. i don't see it happening. but i can see this very narrow way, take a second shot at it. >> a right to free exercise of religion.
's true is just from fcc law, the campaign needs to shut down. we cannot extent funds for not presidential activities. we have to figure out what we do next. that's the conversation we're having with our supporters now. >> there's an organization that could be called obama for america; right? >> it was during '09 and '10? >> attend could be separate from the dnc? >> it could. >> why not institutionalize it and make a candidate for the next race or nominee? >> some of it will live on. the tools that we built, target sharing, dashboard, i hope every campaign uses and becomes important. however, the important thing to note is -- i want to be firm about this. you can't just hand this to the next candidate for president. you know, this organization was built for people who supported this president and who were involved. you know, we had over 32,000 neighborhood team leaders who basically volunteered full time. those people were involved because the issues and positions the president took. we learned this to our surprise in 2010. you can't just hand it to the next candidate. want to talk about t
there are protections legally when it comes to minors, but these kids weren't actually breaking the law, they were just demonstrating some really awful speech and really reflecting in sid u us thought process. they need to learn, everybody needs to learn there's no divide between real life and online. what you say online is just as important as what you say in real life. so i don't think it matters what actually happens to the kids at the schools per se. we're not acting as judges or juries, our responsibility is just to the story. >> but again, the stuff was just awful, some of it i can't repeat on the air. >> absolutely. >> some of these kids are 15, 16, 17, some repeating what they heard their parents say. >> but they're old enough tto know exactly what they're saying. i don't care if you're 15 or 16, i think no one would disagree that those kids didn'n't know wt they were saying. they were expressing dissatisfaction with the election, they were upset that barack obama was president. they knew they were using negative, offensive words to express their disappointment. >> but didn't think anybody outs

's no requirement to shareholders under the law and most companies don't tell shareholders what they're doing and they certainly don't have the opportunity to object to it in any substantive way and change the corporation's policy. so i think the reform agenda looking forward is going to be -- shouldn't there be a provision for shareholder democracy, and what the supreme court talked about in citizens united. should the sec or congress or the states that actually charter corporations, shouldn't they have provisions saying that before a corporation uses shareholder money, it needs their approval and republicans are going say if that's the case, shouldn't we have that for labor unions? why not? if you're going have someone in charge of a group spenting spendsing other people's money and it is other people's money shouldn't they get approval to do that? >> the supreme court said this isn't a problem if it doesn't corrupt. the perception of corruption is also a danger so it seems to me you can't avoid the appearance of corruption in the use of secret money that was given for campaigns. it's one o
